Know Your Limit, Stay Within It

After a night of drinks, pool and dancing it was time to wake my ass up and get out the door. I got up at a leisurely 1 pm and went out for the day.

I love grocery shopping so went hunting for some finds! I managed to pick up some animal chocolates, chocolate covered sunflower seeds 190 cal a bag, and some gummies at 145 cal. I love tricking myself and saying that its "for the kids". Baaaah who am I fooling? I should probably test them to make sure they're "safe"....

It is always a real adventure to find tea that is cheaper and not corn or green. I managed to pick up some chamomile tea bags (5) for W990 (under $1) which is great. I also picked up a bag of chestnuts and lots of dried seaweed. The seaweed is delicious, and really good for you. They make the perfect on the go snack to tie me over for a meal. The downside is there is a lot of salt. You can't win all the time I guess!

One of my favourite parts of Korea is the outdoor amenities. I went to the Yangjaechan to go for my run, I started but then got really bad side stitches. I thought I had waited enough after my Tony Romas takeaway...but I thought wrong. Such a rookie! Anyhoo there are markers every 100m so you can have an idea of how far you have gone. I went from 0-3100m, and then back again. Basically did 6 km of walking in 1 hr 20 min. That is embarassing. The point is that I could have quit and gone home but I decided to walk it out so I'm proud of myself!

Tomorrow I have to give it a better shot and leave more time in between my meal and fast walk/jog...I mean, run HAHA
